    Default Are these Fog lamps broken?

    Are these Fog lamps broken? the picture shows a broken lamp housing. I was going to glue it together after I figure out which bulbs to use. But now I think part of the lamp is missing.

    These original (Hella) lamps are rubbish with a capital C

    Fit something different because they are a known weak lamp assembly.

    The housings weren't designed to cater for idiots driving around all day every day with their front foglamps on.
    They were designed for occasional use in foggy conditions.
    Unfortunately due to the former, many of them out there got hot and the plastic cracked or melted.


    I'd be tempted to ditch them and replace with some DRLs such as these:
